rejected last-minute pleas to delay the bill's passage. even president obama, who won michigan by ten points last month, was unable to sway state lawmakers at the last minute during his visit to detroit. but governor snyder says it was the union who started this fight in the first place. >> i asked them not to go forward, and the reasons i said it is you're going to start a very divisive discussion regarding collective bargaining first, but it also will get into right to work. the right-to-work discussion continued to escalate and was becoming very divisive. the way i viewed it is it's on the table, it's a hot issue, let's show some leadership. so i said when i reviewed it, it's a good thing. it's about being pro-worker, it's about economic development. we will get more jobs coming to michigan because we're going to be more competitive. >> the governor also argued his state's union battle was completely different from what unfolded in wisconsin and ohio. >> i think it's important to make a distinction with wisconsin and ohio. that was about collective bargaining. that was about the re
obama would not have won michigan without labor and wouldn't have won ohio without labor >> bill: the president said this is all political. this is political payback. isn't it? >> absolutely. this is a packyback. they are so angry. they can't believe they lost michigan you heard those stories about dick morris and karl rove thinking they were going to win. even mitt romney didn't even have a concession speech written up. they were so convinced they were going to win. by the way, i saw on the news last night sheldon adelson, the guy with the casinos in las vegas he is starting all over again. he said i will spend $100 million against labor because they realize and these guys all talk together the karl roves, the norquists. >> the koch brothers. >> these people all talk to each other and figure out, how are we going to take over? and what the hell went wrong? they were so convinced that they had the money, that they could win this race now they think we have to go after labor because they are the problem. >> that's why we lost ohio that's why we lost mich
, fighting obama care. even though the people voted for it twice. tennessee governor bill haslem said today his state would not be creating a state-run health insurance exchange. tennessee has now joined 20 other states refusing to participate in state-run health care exchanges. states opting out automatically default to an exchange run by the federal government. republican states don't like the exchanges. but the president said, well, wasn't even his idea. >> one of these reforms is the creation of the health insurance exchange. this is one of the most important reforms, and by the way, originally i should point out, a republican idea. imagine that. >> these health insurance exchanges are critical. they force insurance companies to play by the same set of rules and provide a market place for people to pick and choose their health care. the result is supposed to be lower health care costs. so far, 17 states have declared state-run exchanges. six are planning a partnership exchange with the federal government. and six are undecided. these states have until this friday to inform washington of
was asking us to do and that's what we simply did in august. so it is a president obama last signed bill that we are trying to offer an extension of. i reserve my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady from new york. ms. slaughter: mr. speaker i'm pleased to yield two minutes to the gentleman from minnesota, mr. wauleds. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized for two minutes. mr. waums: thank you mr. speaker. -- mr. walz: thank you mechanic. -- mr. speaker. my discharge petition at the zesk a discharge petition the american people spoke loudly in. we faced an election and the message is clear to me, why do you continue to bicker and make these ka bouquet dance statements with one another when it shouldn't be that difficult. we came out of a constitutional convention, when i asked james madison what the secret to this new government was, compromise, compromise, compromise. to sit here and do what we're doing, not bringing this forward and releasing the tension on the middle class, making sure the economy knows there's stability amongst taxes, is holding our economy ba
and his far right caucus may find the offer unacceptable, but president obama has put a lot on the table. nancy pelosi hit back at boehner's rhetoric today. >> the fact is, the president has and democrats agree, to $1.6 trillion cuts. where are the cuts? in bills that you, mr. speaker, have voted for. >> pelosi is lobbying for house republicans to hold a vote on letting tax cuts expire for the wealthiest americans. with house majority leader eric cantor and congressman paul ryan tasked with pushing boehner's plan on the tea party, it's going to be a tough sell. they are part of boehner's strategy team? in the meantime, the white house is hitting back at boehner and the gop tactics. >> a question of whether or not we have specific spending cuts, the answer is we have. i understand they may not agree with all of it. but it exists. >> i'm joined by illinois congresswoman january schakowsky joining us tonight. congresswoman, good to have you with us. >> thanks, ed. >> harry reid now says it's going to be awful hard to reach a deal by christmas. where is this all heading, in your opinion? >>
crisscrossing across the united states and only about 110 federal inspectors. we had a pipeline safety bill that passed congress and was signed into law by obama in 2011 but it didn't go nearly far enough in beefing up finances to hire more inspectors. to mandate the increased placement of shut-off valves that in case of an incident in a pipeline you could limit the damage. melissa: yeah. >> and also i think we have to reassess the focus over the last decade of looking at terrorism security and look more at maintenance and operations particularly --. melissa: that is interesting point. let me talk to you about the details of this one. it took place just before 1:00 p.m. >> sure. melissa: it was a 20-inch transmission line. even though the gas flow had been shut off here there was still pressure in the line. you know, natural gas, it has become so abundant. it is so cheap right now. we use it so much. it is relatively cleaa on a fossil fuel basis. we forget how dangerous it can be. what do you think of what tyson had to say? >> well it is not clear that any of tyson's solutions would have st
of the world, abc's barbara walters sat down with the obamas for their first joint interview since the election today, but it was also a chance to grill the president on pressing issues from the middle east to the fiscal cliff. barbara? >> bill, today the president had some big news, telling me that for the first time, his administration will recognize the syrian opposition group trying to topple president assad. and further isolating him. the president also sounded optimistic about striking a deal to avoid the january 1st fiscal cliff, but he stressed the clock is ticking. prediction, are you going to be able to raise taxes? yes or no. >> taxes are going to go up one way or the other. i think the key is to make sure taxes go up on high end individuals, like you and me, barbara. we can afford it. and make sure the middle class families don't see their taxes go up. >> my full interview with president obama and the first lady, who were charming and funny together, will air friday, on both "20/20" and later on "nightline." it's been a busy week for me, because tomorrow night, i will have my 19th e
republican-controlled legislature was where it was going to happen. >> woodruff: bill, in a state that voted by ten points for president obama in november, it's a state that is striking a blow for right-to-work. how do you explain that? >> there was a mixeded result on november 6. i think everything mickey said is absolutely true, but republicans still control state government. they've got an ironclad grip from the governor's office, both houses of the legislature, the state supreme court, attorney general, secretary of state, and the window was closing. there are only two weeks left before the end of the year. and they had to get it done now or they were going to turn into pumpkins on new year's eve and only have a slim majority that might not be enough to get right to work to pass early next year. >> woodruff: mickey maynard, the republicans are saying this is going to help the state's economy, what has happened. is there a consensus in the state about whether that is correct or not? >> no, absolutely not. but republicans... what they have been saying and i've been listening to this discus
to please slow the process down, to stop the bills, or at least send them out for referendum. let the people have a say. president obama had a word with governor snyder at the airport in detroit yesterday. we don't know what they said. but later that day, president obama gave a speech about the economy and the middle class in which he came out strongly against a republican plan to weaken michigan's unions. >> what we shouldn't be doing is trying to take away your rights to bargain for better wages and working conditions. [ cheering ] >> we shouldn't be doing that. you know, these so-called right-to-work laws, they don't have anything to do with economics. they have everything to do with politics. >> across the state, democrats yesterday reminded governor snyder the bill was too divisive for michigan. he said that right up until last week when he called a hasty press conference to announce he had reversed his position and the legislation suddenly appeared as if by magic. the bills passed the first round of voting in roughly an hour and a half. this evening governor snyder announced that he ha
by senator barack obama. we mentioned the democratic republic commend these bills include provisional. so far we have scratched the surface of the law. it still baffles me. number three, we need to act the this program. i think we need to encourage militias to transit it out of the system, to turn on their colleagues. it is very much for once you are in the these is very difficult to get out, especially based on ethnic affiliation. number four, we need to apply sanctions against individuals and institutions identified in reports. i commend u.s. government and congress for the recent initiative to sanctions of m23. but it will not serve the tended purpose if we sanction backing of an anybody else, will not sanction and rwanda, uganda bureau set a.b. in the cable continue. it becomes a burden, he will be replaced. he was arrested. so tomorrow will be somebody else and i think we cannot act like were doing some thing when a factory just again during window tracing. number five, we need to push for the electoral process in the political system. the type about rwanda and uganda for bigger elephant
's exactly what these bills do. this is not about helping the state in tough economic times. it is about destroying the unions. this is what president obama rightly said in detroit yesterday. >> obama: these so-called right-to-work laws they don't have to do with economics. they have everything to do with politics. it is giving you the right to work for less money. >> eliot: this is how governor snyder mischaracterized it. >> we'll get more and better jobs coming to michigan because we'll be more competitive. this is about being pro workers giving the workers a choice. it could be a positive for unions during the longer term. >> eliot: is this truly going to be a positive for unions then why were the police and firefighters exempted from the bill? my guess governor snyder wanted to keep the few unions that seemed to support him away from this bill. joining me now is michigan state representative and minority leader and former u.s. congressman from michigan mark shower who served in the michigan state legis
for that next year whether the economy is not grow, those who work at a dental office as a billing specialist, they lose their jobs or the paralegals, these are part of those who will lose their jobs if the president's tax increase goes through, if that happensbarack obama will be responsible, but i will not becomnotbecome -- come comment e economy. i do not want us to go off the fiscal cliff, congress created in a bipartisan way this is the result of the last fiscal cliff. neil: both sides agreed. >> i voted against it, it was a bad idea, why create artificial crises to force action. neil: they did. >> now the country -- now they want to do it again, now let's hurt growth in economy, and cut a deal that hur growth,o from a year from now we'll have a worse fiscal cliff. we have a 16 trillion-dollar debt. these tax increases do nothing to self, you have 200,000 less jobs next year for, that those who vote for that will be held responsible for that decision. neil: is it terrible public policy if you leave off the table. what accounts the majority of spending off the table. if you leave out medi
against it. you passed a strong resolution to say, "this far and no further." why would president obama's fcc chairman, try to do now what the republicans couldn't do then? >> that is a very good question, bill. and i don't have the answer. and it's not only that the senate passed a strong resolution. there were public hearings. and there was the opportunity for the public to give input into this decision making process. and huge numbers of people said, "wait a second, we do not need more media consolidation in america." senate came on record. so why the obama administration is doing something that the bush administration failed to do is beyond my understanding. and we're going to do everything we can to prevent it from happening. >> you may remember that back in 2007, your then senatorial colleague, barack obama wrote a strong letter to the republican chairman of the fcc who wanted to change the rules, just like genachowski is doing now. and he condemned the very tactics that his own fcc chairman is employing today. >> absolutely. and we hope the president will get involved in this iss
bills. but that was not possible. in fact, the obama administration's lack of transparency and failure to meaningfully consult with congress rendered that impossible. as we continue to try to work with the obama administration to develop policies and advance legislation which create economic growth and open new markets for u.s. workers and job creators, the administration must engage in meaningful consultations. accordingly, i would expect that the way that the tajikistan accession has been handled by the obama administration will be an exception and not the norm regarding future consultations. to help ensure that is the case, i will soon sending a letter to the office of the u.s. trade representative with some detailed questions regarding their consultations with congress and the private sector trade advisory committees. it is vitally important that we bring more transparency to this process, so i sincerely hope we receive a detailed and substantive response soon. i also hope we can soon begin t have a meaningful discussion with the administration about their plans for renewing trade
it's sort of odd to hear mitt romney complaining that president obama got an advantage because he was for same sex marriage. not long ago that was a wedge issue bob dole was using against bill clinton. we made other environmentally. [ laughter ] >> thanks for invital us into your home tonight. that is it for this "special report" tonight. fair, balanced and unafraid. >> this is the fox report. tonight, a big bank to pay a huge fine. a record penalty. but no arrests. why exactly is that? plus, union protesters versus lawmakers over a right-to-work bill that's now the law. >> show me what democracy looks like. >> this is what democracy looks like. >> when you bring a right-to-work issues to michigan, the home of labor unions, i think you are itching to pick a fight. [shouting] >> our troopers are prepared for any civil disorder. [chanting] >> our state, our home. >> shepard: it's an enormously controversial measure. >> this legislation isn't about anything except an attack on workers' rights. >> it shouldn't be a condition of employment that you have to join a union and have to pay
raising the debt ceiling is to pay for what congress has already authorized. pay the bills that congress has already incurred. i don't think this is a fight you really want to have with president obama. he -- as a point of principle, he really does believe -- >> bring on a second recession. screw up the economy so bad that obama's record in history doesn't make sense. he is a real bad guy lately. i think mcconnell has stopped being a real conservative and is being a guy that wants to bring down obama. anyway, the new nbc poll shows democratic party approval higher than republican. approval of the democrats 44%. of republicans 30%. it shows that 59% that president obama has a mandate to eliminate tax cuts for the rich. how do you look at that, chip? that's solid that 59%. how can the republicans on the hill deny it? >> well, we lost a major -- we lost a national election, obviously. we didn't gain control of the senate. we did get control of the house. president obama is the guy that beat us. and so they're riding high right now. and they have framed this issue about tax increases on the
are not making fun of anybody suffering. >> it sounds like it. >> we aren't. >> well then vote for obama. >> we don't have to. he is already re-elected. jay vote for him next time. -- >> vote for him next time. >> we'll see. that might change. >> that's a bad example. >> i meant chavez. >> bill, try to pretend you were listening and formulate an answer. >> of course, of course. the man wears all red, comme. white beard, marxist. the elves are all male. gray! -- gay. the stronger reindeer are on top, rudolph, and the ones that don't work as hard are in the back, blitzen, but the rest of him is unbelievably communist. it makes perfect sense. what does he distract us from? religion. we are focusing on santa instead of baby jesus. the war is real. >> rudolph is actually an oppressed minority who over came his problems. gyro say shaw, nose -- rosecea, look into it. >> old news. >> by the way, do parents ask are you good? is that even an issue now? >> i don't have children, but i am qualify to know that it is true. >> i don't -- i do have children, and i am going to say i don't know. >> i believe the
. the bill signed and they can finish up and they can go home. >> michigan has the fifth highest percentage of unionized workers at 17%, its history is well-known. it's a blue state that obama won by points last month. they lost these fights just about everywhere else. democrats in right to work states have moved on. democrats in the state legislature have threatened further action. >> good ideas get debate and bad ones get rammed through with police protection in a legislature. i will say this. this fight is not over. >> it's unclear exactly what democrats and labor can do. critics say it could overturn the law that would require getting 258,000 signatures on the ballot. labor may be looking at 2014 for retribution. >> we are reawakening and going to build a powerful movement. make it crystal clear that schneider can't get away with this. >> this is the first round of a battle that will divide the state. we will have a civil war in this state. >> there you heard it. think about it this way. labor is likely to make schneider a big 2014 target. the mid-western republican governors are aiming
predict technical going over of the fiscal cliff. i think the democrats benefit from putting a bill to the floor that's basically -- that will be the obama tax cut. they're going to have to vote against it. the first vote of this new congress, they're going to have to vote against a middle class tax cut. no win for these guys if they don't pass it in the next week. they can't word it between now and then. crafting a bill actually takes some time and some process. >> stephanie: yep. megan in akron ohio. hi welcome. >> caller: hi. i just have a question for you. about the viability of a challenge to this in michigan. what can they do? >> stephanie: megan, i was doing that story earlier that the unions are saying -- this fight is not over. there may be a way you know, to be able to -- i don't know the technical term for it. basically to be able to put it back -- >> negative ballot initiative. some other options. >> stephanie: if they get enough signatures -- >> the history is not on their side. every time they tr
's be clear, the bill being pushed there should be called the right to work for less, and that's exactly what president obama called it. to quote bob king, the visionary president of the united auto workers of this country, i quote him, every right to work state has lower wages, lower benefits, less security for their workers, and more income inequality, and they have a shrinking middle class. the u.a.w. is right. if you happen to live and work in a state that has a so-called right to work law on the books, you earn an average of $5,000 less a year than if you lived in a worker rights state. the bill signed last night in michigan strips labor organizations of their right to collect dues to cover the cost of negotiating a collective bargaining agreement. the michigan law is pure politics. no, it is more than that. it is old school, union busting technique, pure and simple. and in michigan and ohio, we know a lot about union busting. as the daughter of auto workers, i know the history of the hired goons who bludgeoned auto workers back in the 1930's at river rouge, as workers began to stand up
, completely avoiding this coming crisis. we passed that bill and sent it to the senate. of course the senate's refused to take any action on it. because president obama and his treasury secretary i think has on firmed this, they're eager to go off the cliff. they think they'll get political points by doing thises that political calculation by them to try to plame the other party and you know, let's have this crisis and go and push more taxes on the american people. if you look at what the message of this campaign was, there were a lot of messages. one was people wanted us to work together on bipartisan solutions and we've got those bipartisan solutions to avert this crisis but also to avert so many of the other crises facing this nation. another thing they said, probably the loudest thing people said is they want us to focus on the economy and creating jobs. that's what's the biggest concern for most families across the country. people in southwest louisiana. they're concerned about a sluggish economy and in many cases it's the policies coming out of washington creating these problems. if yo
i say president obama allows us to go over the cliff temporarily so that all the rates go up. then the democrats introduce a bill to lower it for 9 %, do some other stiff -- 98%, do some other stuff they want to do. then the republicans say fine but we've got to hold the debt ceiling, that's the next bargaining chip. i don't think we can use rides above for the debt ceiling because we don't want to rise above the debt ceiling. we have to come one new buttons -- >> pins, the whole thing. yeah. that is a dilemma. what a polemic -- >> constantino is cutting me off. you're going to hold that against me? all right. >> you can hear the voice in my head. >> yeah. he's mad because i attributed -- in fact, he was right. so -- sort of right. >>> coming up, we'll be talking to you in a second. what's that? one in a row. you're right, bob. that's it. >>> coming up, we'll head to vienna where opec leaders are talking crude prices and production. and what is the ceo of the world's largest retailer saying about the fiscal cliff? i bet he wants to rise above. find out your next question on "
to the united states, bill richardson. so that interview coming up later. >>> as fiscal cliff talks here in washington are showing little movement towards a deal, there's now a new report that president obama may be willing to put raising the eligibility age for medicare on the table. is that true? we will discuss more this more in our strategy. can i help you? i heard you guys can ship ground for less than the ups store. that's right. i've learned the only way to get a holiday deal is to camp out. you know we've been open all night. is this a trick to get my spot?

things worse? focus on economic growth. bring out those jobs bills that we fought for. many of them had bipartisan votes. that was a big issue that came out of this election. obama was not talking about jobs or how to control spending. all he wants is an unlimited debt ceiling increase in he can continue going forward. you will see us continue to fight for those principles. we know that is what will eventually help solve these problems. >> look, what we need -- i guess -- roc but something forward that when to 2 rates. -- 2% rates. we should have raised taxes -- we need a plan that inspires. everyone understands that the tax code is broken. how many of you inc. said the tax code is broken? every hand goes up. think about it. any tax code that says half the population, you do not have to participate in the vein tax, is broken. any tax code that says to american companies we will charge you the highest corporate rate in the world is stupid. it is broken and stupid. you might want to start over. here is what we are for, here is what helps your family. here is how it makes a difference for
